Special Card 2 - Christine

Hi Folks.  Today's card is for a lady in my apartment block.  She is so good to everyone.  She fattens us up with cakes even when we don't want them.  Lol!!!  Her hobby is cooking, especially cakes.  She is always knocking on the door and handing you cakes and runs.  Even if you say you are trying to diet she takes no notice.  It isn't helping at the moment as with my hubby's illness he has lost a lot of weight.  So now she say's " I thought Tony would like these to put his weight back on"!!!

She adores purple and there is purple everywhere in her apartment, so I thought this Christmas card would go well.

Entered this for:- Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge. this week, I haven't played the Twist of  HAPPY BIRTHDAY
